Baucus Bill Not Online


The AP reports that the  Baucus bill that will eventually become law will not be online. They know what happens when that put the actual bill online, the people actually read it, so it appears that “conceptual language” will have to do. I don’t think so.

AP- Senate Finance Committee Democrats have rejected a GOP amendment that would have required a health overhaul bill to be available online for 72 hours before the committee votes. Republicans argued that transparency is an Obama administration goal. They also noted that their constituents are demanding that they read bills before voting. Democrats said it was a delay tactic that could have postponed a vote for weeks.The Democrats noted that unlike other committees, the Finance Committee works off conceptual language that describes policies — instead of legislative language that ultimately becomes law, and which the GOP amendment would have required. Democrats accepted an alternate amendment to make conceptual language available online before a vote.

Here’s a thought, what if the Senate Finance Committee decided to “change” their ways?

  1. Left wing socialist Democrats are once again lurking in dark corners and will attempt to pass their ObamaCare bill in the dead of night hoping American Citizens will be asleep and won’t notice!
